If you are concerned about too much straying on your pet dog's part, then the Petsafe Wireless Fence (PIF-300) is the product you should have. With the fence set up, you will be able to keep your dog from going too far, according to your settings. The product comes with two extra battery packs, so you need not worry about the batteries running out when you use the product.
Main Pros of the PIF-300
– It administers corrections of varying intensity, depending on your choice.
At the beginning, you may consider higher-intensity corrections so that the dog will associate them with wandering beyond the boundary. Over time, you can lower the intensity. To ensure that your dog does not get too much shock, if it is still outside the boundary after 35 seconds, the shock stops. By then you should have brought your dog back inside the boundary.
– The PIF-300 can cover a circular area with a diameter up to 180 feet (about a half-acre of area).
With the wide coverage of the fence, it ensures that your dog will never go too far. This 180-feet diameter is adjustable. For instance, if you want a 120-feet diameter or 90-feet diameter, you can have it. You can increase the diameter beyond 180 feet by adding some more if-100 transmitters.
– The "instant installation" feature prevents messiness when you first set up the fence.
With "instant installation", all you need is a plug which serves as the power source. You don't have to buy any poles or wires to set up the fence. Instead of relying on physical boundaries, the product relies on radio signals to determine if your dog is going beyond the boundary.
– The PIF-300 is easily portable.
No matter where you are, as long as there is a plug, you can bring the fence with you. Just plug and your dog be shocked, as always, when it goes beyond the boundary line. Dog training need not stop when you are outside of your home. You can change the area of the boundary as you deem appropriate for a specific outdoor setting.
– The receiver is waterproof.
Even when it is raining, you need not worry about your dog escaping the boundary. The product will still work well.
Some Cons of the PIF-300
